Job Details

About the role and our team

Join our team on the Acute Medical Unit at Noble's Hospital on the Isle of Man!

The Acute Medical Unit (AMU) is a 20-bedded unit which acts as the main point of referral, assessment and admission of patients to the Medical Division. It functions as the interface between primary care or the Emergency Department and acute assessment and care in the Medical Division.

The AMU operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and is the receiving area for patients requiring acute N.I.V treatment. The Unit won the first Manx Care Award for demonstrating excellent care and standards and being professional ambassadors of the Manx Care values.

We also operate our own Ambulatory Emergency Clinic (AEC), which you will have the opportunity to step into as part of your development.

The AEC operates Monday to Friday and will see patients referred for care and treatment which can reduce length of hospital stay or prevent admission into hospital. The clinic provides treatment such as blood transfusions, lumbar punctures, ordering and reviewing scans, ascitic drains and monitoring of acute treatments. The clinic also operates the Anti-viral service where covid positive patients are provided with vital treatment on an outpatient basis.

The unit is managed by a Senior Sister with support from Sisters and Charge Nurses, alongside a highly skilled team of Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants who are responsible for providing high standards of care, meeting specific patient needs and promoting safety and recovery.

If you’re looking for an opportunity where you can gain diverse experience of acute medical problems then this could be the role for you!

What can this role offer me?

  • By joining us you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS
  • Developing our team to be the best they can be is important to us and we actively support your own personal career goalsaspirations and development
  • We offer competitive salaries which tend to be higher than UK salaries with opportunities for annual pay increases for many roles. We offer shift allowances of:
    • Time + 30% for work after 8pm
    • Time + 60% for work on Sundays and Bank Holidays
  • You will enjoy generous annual leave entitlement of 27 days and 10 public holidays
  • For candidates not on the Isle of Man we will reimburse your interview expenses and give you a relocation package of up to £7,000 to get you, your things and your family to the island. You will also be eligible for housing assistance to help contribute towards your mortgage or rent on the island
  • For those relocating or returning to the island you will receive a refund on your national insurance contributions made in your first year, this could be up to £4,000!
  • Great on site facilities and free car parking


About the Island and relocating

Here you can enjoy a fantastic quality of life, and an excellent work-life balance! There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities; so if you like walking, mountain biking, sailing or kayaking, you’ll have lots of places to explore!


There are also lots of great cafes, bars and restaurants, and you can enjoy the Island’s real sense of community. The island is well connected to the UK, and you’ll also benefit from low income tax rates (20% maximum rate).


If you are relocating or returning to the Island, you can also benefit from the National Insurance Holiday Scheme, which allows you to apply for a refund on your NI contributions for your 1st year of living here. 


A relocation package of up to £7,000 based on receipts is available for this role. Housing Assistance is also available where the Department will pay the difference between your current mortgage/rent bill, and that of your new accommodation on the Isle of Man, up to a maximum of £250 per month.
